VFX Artists

Do you enjoy working with shaders and particle effects to deliver both realistic and fantastical VFX, for both gameplay and atmosphere? Yes? Great!

Arrowhead is a flexible studio, and artists are required often to work on different aspects of the game. Although we are primarily after a VFX Artist, we ask that artists are comfortable helping out across all fields; be it 2D or Environment.

We look for candidates that have experience working in games development, preferably a few years. This is primarily to ensure that those applying are able to fit in to a team and provide solid assets from day one. Strong communication and team skills are essential.

We ask that all VFX Artists take our art test (available here). It’s great if you can do this before applying, but we realize you may be busy with a current position so you can always drop us an email first.
